( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

See the autocheck parameter, which turns all HTTP errors into fatal errors. When you turn autocheck off, you will need to do all error checking yourself.

my $mech = WWW::Mechanize->new( autocheck => 0 ); my $res = $mech->get('does.notexist.example'); $res->is_success or print "Uhoh\n";

Alternatively, use eval to trap fatal errors when making the original connection.

my $mech = WWW::Mechanize->new(); my $connected = eval { $mech->get('does.notexist.example'); 1 }; if (! $connected) { print "Uhoh\n"; };

Also see Try::Tiny to reduce the exception-dance to one less step (I haven't used it myself):

use Try::Tiny; my $mech = WWW::Mechanize->new(); try { $mech->get('does.notexist.example'); } catch { print "Uhoh: $_\n"; };

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
